which bet on the housing market to collapse and his backing of the deregulation of wall street. what do you believe the deregulation of wall street pushed by people like alan greenspan contributed significantly to the disaster we saw on wall street several years ago? >> i don't personally know the extent to which deregulation drove it, but i don't believe deregulation was the proximate cause. >> we will speak with former financial regulator william black, author of "the best way to rob a bank is to own one." and matt taibbi with this new piece, the tax secrets and lies of the bella." >> par sabbai the treasury, it is all done by ex wall street people and current wall street people. ordinary people really do not have input into any of this. >> then, haiti. three years after the earthquake that killed over 300,000 people, we speak to jonathan katz, author of, "the big truck that went by: how the world came to save haiti and left behind a disaster." all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!,", the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman at least 120 people were

to put your old one to shame. >> las vegas, the gambler's paradise. visitors are betting on the next technology breakthrough. they think they have a winner. they look like microwaves, but they can help a new industrial revolution. what was once made in a factory can now be produced cheaply in your living room. by chance or model figures from the latest sci-fi movie. the machines can scan and print anything. the design is modeled on a computer, and the printer puts the material together layer by layer. it is a breakthrough, especially for new items only produced in small batches. and costing around $1,500 each, it is a price tag that consumers can now afford. >> we are really about innovation in this space. it is like being back at the beginning of the personal computer revolution in 1980. i think it will actually be bigger than personal computing. >> human implants can also be printed, spelling an end to costly lab production. hearing aids can be tailored to the year. the liquid acrylic is printed and hardened using a laser. the low-cost offer huge opportunities, especially in develo

, switzerland, and austria. during the cold war, germany's bundesbank took a bet by soaring gold reserves around the world and left in there after the collapse of communism. >> last year, official auditors point out that official stockpiles abroad have never actually been counted. >> plans are afoot to bring the bars back home, or at least some of them. >> at least he knows what he has in his hands -- his golden globe is nothing more than a thin layer of 24 karat gold covering up something much less precious, and there is no doubt about the quality of the gold in the bundesbanks either. experts inspect and count it every year. these do not have a chance. but this kind of checks are not possible every year. u.s. federal reserve's held somewhere in new york are not open to german gold inspectors. germany owns a total of about 3,396 tons of gold, and almost 131 -- 1/3 of that is held in frankfurt. but almost half of germany's goal design in new york. now, the bank is said to have worked up a plan to move more of its gold reserves onto german soil. that plan includes withdrawing all of its gold from

the cafe under normal conditions. i'll bet he'll want to interview the rest of us, too. sure, you can show him some of your dish-washing techniques. and i'll fix one of my best recipes. - that'll either cure them or kill them. - what do you mean by that ? now, look. we have to be on our best behavior. that means you two have to get along. i thought you said they wanted us to act normal. i am sorry i'm late. i forgot the time. just by chance, in this episode, we are learning how to do... what i just did: apologize. there are times when each of us must apologize... for something we have done like the people in the situations we are about to see. i need to hurry and close this segment of "word play." otherwise, i will have to apologize again because it's time for us to get back to the story. i'm so sorry it took so long. thank you. miss ? can you take this ? we're in a hurry. sure. isn't mr. brashov back from the bank yet ? no. and henry is still out delivering orders, so it's just you and me, kid. it's just me out here, unless i can get jamal to help me cle

out later on, that maybe the answer you had was wrong. but i'll bet you this, by the end of the semester, you guys will be able to answer all these questions comfortably. okay? here's an example. i got a piece of clay and the keys. clay is significantly heavier than the keys. when i drop them, they both fall together. why didn't the clay fall faster? hc? how come? [laughter] we gonna find out there's a reason for that. and we gonna find out that the fellow by the name of galileo, who first did that, the leaning tower of pisa. he was reported to have dropped a heavy, heavy ball and a light one, and foom, they both fell about together. and at that time, people thought that heavy things fell faster than light things. and galileo demolished all the physics at that point by showing that, wow, it was wrong that heavy things fall faster than light things. that's only in the presence of air resistance. but without the air drag, both fall together. and galileo couldn't answer the question "why?" and guess who's gonna be able to answer that question "why"? look at the person to the

seconds to hit the ground, your last thought will be, "hey, it took-- i bet you i fell 500 meters." that's how far you'd go. and you see that. any questions on all this? so we're really summarizing what we talked about last time. there's a difference between how much you pick up speed, okay, and between how fast you're going and how far you're going. and for falling things, the acceleration will always be the same, 10 meters per second per second. later on we'll round that off to 9.8 meters per second, per second, okay? but 10s are easier to deal with, right? and we find out that how fast we go is simply the acceleration multiplied to how long you're falling. it makes sense. and how far you go has to do with the time squared. so it's averaging out 5t squared. how we got that is derived in the footnote of your book, and you can kind of go back and look at that if you want. i don't expect you to derive that. i want you to just know this doesn't pop out of the air and magic, okay? there's a reason for this. now, we talked how that came about last time. look it up if you want. what's kind of

to bet your house on the outcome, but i would say the likelihood is they're not going to be allowed to get an assault weapons ban through. >> how about a clip? >> i don't think ultimately they will get that, either, because i don't think you can make a case that you could really regulate it. these things cost virtually nothing. you and david gregory could find them. but the fact is, we live in a situation where first of all we have constitutional rights and secondly, there are millions upon millions of americans who value the rights they have under the second eminent and are involved in shooting sports bar use firearms for self-defense, and we think they will be heard. >> that was the nra president. an abc news/washington post poll shows support for gun control measures is on the rise, finding 54% of americans are in favor stricter gun control laws in general. nearly 60% short -- support a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips. a recent poll showed that the federal assault weapons ban was in place for 10 years, far fewer high-capacity guns were found at crime scenes. after the ban e

prosperous. [applause] and those who bet against this country have inevitably been on the wrong side of history. so it is a good moment to gaze upward and behold the statue of freedom at the top of the capitol dome. it is a good moment to gain strength and courage and humility from those who are determined to complete the half- finished dome. it is a good moment to rejoiced today at this 57 presidential inaugural ceremony, and it is the perfect moment to renew our collective faith in the future of america.
